ABOUT THIS BOOK
Within the wide and fascinating field of radar techniques and systems, this book describes in detail a number of areas of research related to system architecture and design, phenomenology, array antennas and signal processing.
The topics covered include:
- Radar detection
- Phenomenology of clutter and related constant false alarm rate (CFAR) processors
- Doppler techniques for surveillance radar, multifunction radar and synthetic aperture radar
- Clutter suppression: moving target indicators and detectors, adaptive and optimum MTI
- Rejection of jamming in space and frequency domains
- Concepts of radar target identification
- Architectural options and trend in radar signal processing
- Phased arrays: array theory, analysis and synthesis techniques; array elements and mutual coupling effects; architecture, elements, design criteria and low-sidelobe techniques for active arrays
- Bistatic radar
- Space-based radar
The book is primarily aimed at radar engineers and researchers, as well as at students of advanced radar.
